org-time-stamp inserts at point (see definition of point in the Emacs manual) so you are in complete control of where the string is inserted. If it is not inserted where you expect, then you need to move point (i.e. your cursor) to the appropriate place. Note that point is between two characters: the character that your cursor is on and the character before ...

This does not quite reproduce what you want, but it's close. Try setting org-agenda-use-time-grid to t. That will show you a time grid like this: Weather: 6:34...... Sunrise 8:00...... ---------------- 10:00...... ---------------- 12:00...... ---------------- 14:00...... ---------------- ...

I don't think there is an option for doing that, so if you really want it, you'll have to modify the Org mode sources and carry the patch privately (I doubt very much that this change would be accepted upstream). That means that every time that you want to update, you will have to apply the patch again (and again, and again...) The patch itself is simple: ...

I found the answer in Is there a way to start org-mode agenda with a custom search? : (org-agenda nil "d")

This error occurred for me when using straight.el to load various org packages. Org being a dependency leads straight to cloning a current version of it into its local repo. Using agenda then created the same error message of Symbol’s value as variable is void: org-priority-highest. In my case(Emacs 27.1, Org 9.3), a simple solution was to tell straight.el ...

The compare function is run on the agenda buffer, not the original org buffer. Various data from the original is inserted as text properties, but this doesn't include general org properties (as in things in the :PROPERTIES: drawer). To retrieve generic data from an org entry, first get the position of the original entry (stored as the org-marker text ...

If I correctly understood your question, the solution is pretty simple: (defun emacs-startup-screen () "Display the weekly org-agenda and all todos." (org-agenda nil "n")) (add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook #'emacs-startup-screen) Instead of the named function emacs-startup-screen, you can also use a lambda function like (lambda () (org-...

If you write * TODO Quiz DEADLINE: <2020-10-09 -5d> on, Monday 2020-10-05, you should get some thing like task: In 4 d.: TODO Quiz in your agenda. Note that this will only appear on Monday. If on Sunday you look at the agenda for the next day, this entry will not appear.

Here is some lightly improved code that preserves the modified state when applied.For me tasks that are readonly do get listed in the agenda, but I get a bell error about text being read-only. I guess org-agenda is trying to set some properties on the text or something, and is having trouble because it is read-only. I don't see a real way around that. (defun ...

Following comments, it doesn't looks like a bug to me, parse-time-months contains "sep" and "september" nothing in between. If org-read-date cannot parse what you give defaults to current date (in use). As further reference Org manual says: The function understands English month and weekday abbreviations. If you want to use un-...

There are three parts to the answer: write a function that deletes an Effort entry from the properties drawer of the current headline. write the corresponding agenda function that calls the function above "remotely"; i.e. you call the agenda function in the agenda and it in turn switches context to the headline in the file and calls the first ...

You can set it globally with the variable org-deadline-warning-days. For example, to start showing all tasks 3 days before the deadline: (setq org-deadline-warning-days 3) If you want to set it individually, you can use the following construct in the timestamp itself: DEADLINE: <2021-07-20 dom -3d> Here, you can also use other modifiers, such as ...

[Capturing and summarizing the comments as an answer.] Although org-attach does not provide an automatic way to add the list of files in the attachment directory of a headline node to that node explicitly, it does provide some mechanisms which could be used to do so. There is no problem about getting the current list: (org-attach-file-list (org-attach-dir)) ...

Assuming you have the Org agenda dispatcher on C-c a, then C-c a m TIMESTAMP<="<now>" RET should show you all the left-behind timestamps, although I'm not sure it distinguishes actives from inactives. See Matching tags and properties and Special Properties. EDIT: The above finds active timestamps only. Finding both active and inactive ...

Simply write <2020-10-20 mar. 10:00-12:00> instead. If you have the timegrid enabled you'll even be able to see the time span.

Comment by NickD: "Then you have not loaded Org mode: try evaluating (require 'org-agenda) and then see if it works. You can then add this form to your init file, so when you restart emacs, the function will be available." Yes that was the fault. I insert an autoload command before loading the calendar. Now it works.

"Entry" is used ambiguously in the documentation: an Org mode entry consists of a headline, scheduling information, optional drawers and the body of entry (text, possibly followed by subentries). an agenda entry consists of some agenda information (the category, scheduling information, possibly some other things controlled by the variable org-...

Do C-h v org-agenda-todo-ignore-time-comparison-use-seconds and click customize. Click Value menu. Set it to Compare time with seconds. Save Restart emacs This changes the comparison from the default value which is days.

Quoting from my comment: Judging from the fact that the DONE face and the TODO face look the same above, I'm guessing that your org-todo-keywords are screwed up, so Org mode does not know that it is done. So I checked your init file and I see this: ... '(org-todo-keywords '((sequence "TODO(t)" "DONE(d)" "WAITING(w)" "...

In spite of appearances, that is not the file name: that is the category. You can set the category to something different (including the empty string), by adding a #+CATEGORY keyword at the beginning of your file. To set it to the emptry string, just say #+CATEGORY: See Categories in the manual. CATEGORY can also be set at the header level via the ...

I'm not sure how this is handled in org-journal, by base orgmode provides datetree as an option for capture templates. These are created and inserted in sorted order. This allows you to define an appropriate capture element to add entries to your journal.org file. From the org manual, (org) Template elements: ‘(file+olp+datetree "filename" [ "...

You can use the appt package, in combination with org-agenda-to-appt to get notifications from agenda items. Something like this should be enough: (require "appt") (org-agenda-to-appt) (appt-activate 1) org-agenda-to-appt adds all the relevant agenda entries to an appt list, that the appt package then uses for notifying you about them. You will ...

The location and shape of the notification varies with how each Desktop Environment deals with notifications. Make sure that you satisfy the prerequisites: install the libnotify library: on my Fedora system, I do sudo dnf install libnotify. If you use Debian or a derivative, you will probably have to say sudo apt-get install libnotify and similarly for ...


1

A way to achieve this: You can use the built-in function org-journal-new-scheduled-entry to add a timestamp (and TODO when no prefix is given) to your journal entries so they show up in the agenda. I bind it to a key (use-package config): :bind ("C-c j a" . org-journal-new-scheduled-entry) You are prompted for a date. Just hit RET to get the ...

Here's two implementations. The first one is along the lines that @Aquaactress suggested in a comment: (defun my/org-agenda-list-current-buffer () (interactive) (let ((org-agenda-files (list (buffer-file-name (current-buffer))))) (call-interactively #'org-agenda))) Basically, rebind org-agenda-files temporarily before calling org-agenda. You get ...

Property values are strings. The value of the property RESPONSIBLE above is the string "Kate Aaron", so your search does not find it. You could do a regular expression search instead: RESPONSIBLE={Aaron} (see Matching tags and properties for details). IMO however, you are better off using tags. Given headlines like this: * TODO Something :...

The only problem is that you have forgotten a mandatory piece in the command. C-h v org-agenda-custom-commands says in part: Each entry is a list like this: (key desc type match settings files) ... type The command type, any of the following symbols: agenda The daily/weekly agenda. ... match What to search for: ... ...

If that doesn't help, you can use the below to set the start day to today for org-agenda. (setq org-agenda-start-day (org-today))

Was having the exact same problem. Issue: If you take a look at the source for org-agenda-bulk-mark-regexp: (defun org-agenda-bulk-mark-regexp (regexp) "Mark entries matching REGEXP for future agenda bulk action." (interactive "sMark entries matching regexp: ") (let ((entries-marked 0) txt-at-point) (save-excursion (goto-...
